Psalm 143:1-6 CJB

1 A psalm of David: ADONAI, hear my prayer; listen to my pleas for mercy. In your faithfulness, answer me, and in your righteousness.
2 Don't bring your servant to trial, since in your sight no one alive would be considered righteous.
3 For an enemy is pursuing me; he has crushed my life into the ground and left me to live in darkness, like those who have been long dead.
4 My spirit faints within me; my heart is appalled within me.
5 I remember the days of old, reflecting on all your deeds, thinking about the work of your hands.
6 I spread out my hands to you, I long for you like a thirsty land. (Selah)
